January 28, 2016 - It's been 2+ years since last sampling and - I suppose this is a positive - it's holding steady. Consistently below average and consistently disappointing...but not the grape piss others describe either. Tart? Yup. Slightly medicinal? Oh yeah. Drinkable, but why bother...
Needed space in the cellar (that this was wasting) so decided to dump my last 6 bottles (a solid $40 investment) - this note is consistent with 4 of the bottles tasted before the drain. The other 2 appeared flawed and/or were more indicative of the scathing reviews by others.

November 23, 2015 - My "81" point score from a couple of years ago was optimistic. A real Garagiste fail. Sadly I have a 3rd bottle. You get what you pay ($7) for.

September 30, 2015 - Jon Rimmerman - do the right thing and provide all customers not only with a full refund, but with a bottle of something decent for every bottle foisted upon your trusting masses. I would worry about pouring this on my compost heap.

August 17, 2015 - After two scathing reviews I have left for this wine I am having to backtrack. While those first two were astoundingly awful, this bottle is actually quite nice. I did not know I even had one left. I opened it expecting to dump it and instead was surprised by a nice ten-year-old cab. Clearly a huge variation in lots.
